This week has been an exciting one for darts fans. The British Darts Organisation World Championship has been in full swing since Saturday 2nd of January, but now the pace has really picked up.
The quarter-finals turned out be an intensely heated affair, with defending champion Scott Mitchell making a tremendous comeback bringing him through to the semi-finals. Meanwhile, Denmark’s Ann-Louise Peters was able to progress to the semi-finals and set a new record at the same time; Peter made a 160 checkout that now stands as the highest finish in the history of the women’s competition at Lakeside.
A Darts Trophy Worthy of Champions
The darts trophy that participants are playing for is the prestigious Sid Waddell Trophy:
Standing at around 28 inches and weighing in at 25kg, the trophy features six silver rods that rise up to hold an engraved silver globe. To truly define itself as a darts trophy that pays homage to the game, the globe is adorned with a 20 carat garnet that symbolise the bullseye of a dartboard.
The base of the trophy is crafted from Black Granite and Red Eritrean Marble – the same rare marble that was used by Michelangelo in the Sistine Chapel. The trophy is then accentuated with a plaque engraved with the signature of Sid Waddell himself.
